Punters go home
OSU’s defense is improving. It made Texas Tech wait 87 seconds before scoring. The Red Raiders went 69 yards in six plays to take a 7-0 lead. OSU’s overmatched secondary was apparent in the drive. Martel Van Zant was turned around by Tech freshman Michael Crabtree, making a short slant a 30-yard gain. Then Crabtree broke a tackle from Calvin Mickens for a 9-yard TD reception.
But the Cowboys answered with the kind of drive needed against Tech, a 13-play, 71-yard drive. OSU ran nine times, with Zac Robinson throwing four times. Dantrell Savage carried five times for 28 yards; Savage is what OSU has been missing. He’s an excellent tailback, and on his 4-yard TD run, Savage should have been stopped far short of the goal line. But he kept his feet and staggered into the end zone.
Robinson and Bobby Reid might be a wash at quarterback, but there’s no doubt that Savage is OSU’s best tailback.
